One man guitar

The most prominent description is the one man bands that entertains here, they have a good variety of both secular and gospel. Good meat too, but you must be patient. You have to take care of your valuables when here particularly in the evenings.

This place has mediocre Kenyan food. Stewed chicken or wet fry chicken tasted like home made, skuma or greens were undercooked and bitter, beef stew and Ugali were nothing special. Motura tasted good, but made us sick (diarrhea). The chips/fries were old.

Visited this place on a Sunday afternoon with a couple of friends. Unless all other places are out of service, please reconsider. The service is terribly slow. The meat is tasty though but be careful with the chicken as they will bring you the previous day's fowl patted down with oil in an attempt to fool you into thinking that... More

The buffet lunch served here on weekdays provides for a good meal for a working person who is in a hurry to rush back to work.

Popular joint. Road blocked, rough and muddy. Has good nyama choma, very slow service and a waiter once left with my change. Location is okay and security also average.

This is a good local place to wind down and enjoy local food. Give a typical Kenyan day or night out atmosphere. With Football screens and local music in the air

These guys have really tasty nyama choma. For an opportunity to catch up with your colleagues after work over something to eat.

I had lunch asked if Matumbo was boiled b4 I ordered was told yes, but shocking it was unchewably hard,! The manager offered an alternative. Good. The bar sells mini bottles instead of tots should be flexible I might not have capacity for a bottle! They have free WiFi which is G8, I can sit and work!
